The classic lineup is:
Lee Kerslake - drums
Gary Thain - bass
Ken Hensley - organ, etc.
Mick Box - Guitar
David Byron - vocals

I don't think I ever saw that live at the Bijou 72 footage. I wish it was a little better sound quality but that is Fantastic!
We do have Heep listed in the Progressive Rock area, but this thread is cool cause you specify the Byron era. I'm not that picky here  8)
That is definitely the definitive classic era of the band, I did thoroughly enjoy the John Lawton years, and Bernie Shaw has been around forever now and does the material justice and has recorded some good studio material himself. But yeah the classic lineup ruled. Always boggled my mind how they weren't mentioned in the same breath as say a Deep Purple. They deserved major credit and seem to come up short at least in the US when it comes to being a household name.
